Classic Cuisinart® Wheat BreadCuisinart Original Recipe
The nutty flavor of whole wheat makes this bread a favorite.
Approximate preparation time: 10 to 15 minutes, plus 2½ hours rising and resting, 35 minutes baking, and 1 hour or longer cooling
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/3 cup warm water (105° to 110°F)
2 cups unbleached, ll-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 cup cold water
nonstick cooking spray
Dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water in a large liquid measuring cup. Let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.
Insert the dough blade into the large work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor. Add the flours, butter and salt and process until combined, about 10 to 15 seconds. Add the cold water to the yeast mixture. With the machine running, pour the liquid through the feed tube as fast as the flour absorbs it. Once the dough cleans the sides of the work bowl and forms a ball, process for 45 seconds to knead dough. Dough should be smooth and elastic.
Place the dough in a lightly floured plastic food storage bag and seal. Allow to rest in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 to 1½ hours.
Lightly coat a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and punch down; let rest 5 to 10 minutes. Shape the dough into a loaf. Place in prepared pan and cover lightly with plastic wrap. Let rise until dough is just above the tops of the pans, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Bake until the top is browned and loaf sounds hollow when tapped, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
